KILLER KUTS #8
Very early disco track issued on 45 (???), on yellow vinyl (!!!).... Was this ever released on 12"? Anyone have it on 12", send a picture over and I will post it. Wonderfully lo-fi and very loose NYC disco from 1975 performed by the reggae influenced DISCO DUB BAND. Truly ahead of their time, they blended bass/hi-hat heavy reggae style production, and some funk. A true original blend that would become the norm almost 5 years later when the disco punks take over. This can even pass for an early Dinosaur L demo perhaps??? The instrumental is definitely the better side, where the band gets to 'jam' more. Oh yeah, this is supposed to be a cover of the Isley Brothers classic, but you can barely tell. Most bands would take the signature bass line from the song, but Disco Dub Band makes it their own.
